EDITORS COMMENTS
Step back in time with this print from the early 1900s, showcasing a truly extraordinary sight in Truro, Cornwall. As you gaze upon the image, your eyes are immediately drawn to the majestic elephants gracefully parading down St Marys Street. Accompanied by a mounted policeman ensuring their safe passage, these gentle giants captivate both young and old alike. The bustling scene is filled with excitement as crowds gather along the pavement to catch a glimpse of this magnificent spectacle. A group of curious boys walk alongside the elephants, their faces beaming with awe and wonderment. In the backdrop stands Truro Cathedral, its towering presence adding an air of grandeur to this already remarkable moment frozen in time. To the left of the picture, one can spot a sign for the renowned Red Lion Hotel - a testament to Truro's rich history and vibrant hospitality industry even then. The circus itself is believed to be none other than Bertram Mills Circus; however, it remains uncertain due to limited information about its origin captured by an unknown photographer. This incredible photograph offers us a window into Cornwall's past - a reminder of how life once unfolded on these very streets. It serves as both an intriguing historical artifact and an enchanting piece that sparks our imagination about days gone by.
